Yes the Nokia 6100 is old, it will be upgraded when my Vodacom Contract is renewed in a few months.

It lacks support for reading RSS feeds so I’ve done a little googling for a RSS (Realy Simple Sydication) reader for my Nokia 6100 and came accross PocketWeb.

RSS on my Nokia 6100PocketWeb saves you connection fees
PocketWeb minimizes data traffic. Only data that can be displayed on your phone is really loaded: images are scaled to your device`s screen size before downloading. HTML code is optimized and compressed before downloading, resulting in up to 70% smaller file sizes. Moreover, pages are downloaded incrementally in smaller pieces, so you can decide after the first piece whether you like to load the rest.
These features are realized using a proxy server which preprocesses all content before sending it to the phone. This way, connection fees are much lower compared to other stand-alone WAP, HTML, or RSS readers.

I’ve downloaded the application to read RSS on my Nokia 6100. For the next 10 days or 50 pages viewed (the free trial period) I’ll be giving it a go.

Will probaly be posting an open source alternative then too. Oh, the Who the Web AddiCT is page has been updated…
